COMMUNICATION AND INFLUENCE SKILLS ARE
KEY ENABLERS OF SUCCESS IN THE 21ST CENTURY

Are you communicating and influencing…or are you just talking?

We sometimes find ourselves in situations where it is difficult to understand where the other person is coming from, and despite our best efforts, we can’t get our point across. It’s almost like we are speaking a different language, and according to PCM, we are. We just can’t tune into the right channel to effectively get our point across.
Understanding yourself and others better is the first step to improving communication. 
With improved skills you can reach people you have struggled to communicate with previously.

Nowhere in our education are students taught the science of communication…that is, how to know when to use the appropriate communication channel to use to fully engage another person. By the way, there are four different communication channels and each of us has a preferred channel through which we are best engaged

PCM offers a number of unique personal development tools which allow you to understand your own behaviour. Suddenly it becomes obvious why you respond in a particular way in certain situations. You are also able to anticipate the behaviour of others – whether at work, in a social setting or at home.

Communication can be particularly difficult when you or someone to whom you’re speaking is under pressure. With PCM you learn to understand your personal distress reactions – and where necessary modify them to achieve the outcomes you are seeking! If you are in a “not ok” reactive state, it is impossible to connect with or communicate with others.

You will also learn to recognise when others are under pressure because their behavior will be highly predictable. You can then assist them so that communication begins again.

WHERE: Westmead Hospital REN Building

COMMUNICATION AND INFLUENCE SKILLS ARE
The KEY ENABLERS OF SUCCESS IN THE 21ST CENTURY

PCM Part 2 Course Overview

The advnced 3 day program allows you to build on and deepen your knowledge whilst practising the skills you learnt throught PCM Part 1. You will learn about understanding your own reactions under distress, recognising distress in others, understanding your own behaviour and making communication happen.

PCM enables you to listen to what has been said, while at the same time being aware of how it has been said. At times we are preoccupied with what has been said , formulating our own reply and focusing solely on the contents of the conversation. To communicate effectively, we need to focus on the communication channels others are using and to recognise when they are in distress.

Advanced PCM conentrates more strongly on the failure mechanisms of distress, making it easier to apply PCM in order to resolve conflict and motivate others.

Key Learning Outcomes:

- Understand the underlying emotional issues each personaility phase has which may cause long term and intense distress

- Appreciate the role our early enviroment plays in our behaviour and how it can lead to miscommunication

- Synthesise how personailty types, their psychological needs, communication channels, their perceptions and distress patterns all come together and are highly predictable

- Idenifty the distress patterns that are linked to particular 'scripts'

- Understand how failed communication and not having our needs met may invite us into distress

- List the verbal and non-verbal clues that help to assess a situation

- Explain how we can motivate ourselves and others to communicate effectively
